September's Space Highlight

The SpaceX Starship is a HUGE rocket designed to launch humans to the moon and Mars. Previously, Test vehicles had only completed short hops or bellyflop and landing tests. This will soon change with the launch of Ship 20 and Booster 4, proving Starship is capable of orbit, and that the booster can controllably reenter and propulsively land. Most recently, we saw the stacking of Booster 4 and Ship 20 on the orbital launch site. The orbital launch date is unknown, but it is unknown if Booster 4 will conduct static fires (firings of the engines) or Cryo proofs (filling the tanks with liquid Nitrogen). One thing is for certian, and that is that this is history in the making.
